ORLANDO, Fla. - The Orlando neighborhood where Casey Anthony once lived turned into a strange hybrid of compassion and must-see tourism after she was found not guilty of murdering her 2-year-old daughter Caylee.
The streets became parking lots for a fleet of police cars and television trucks. People from as far away as Canada interrupted their plans when the verdict was announced Tuesday and found the house where Caylee's grandparents lived. More often, they went to the nearby woods where Caylee's skeleton was found in December 2008 and where memorial had sprung up. One woman was there for the third time in two days.
Six helium balloons, dozens of stuffed animals and handwritten signs about Caylee and the word justice stood, slightly weathered. One sign "Justice Will Be Served" had a Winnie The Pooh stuffed bear covering the word "served."
